LOCATION: Anime Events (S230G)
SIGN UP: 1:00 PM
EVENT: 1:30 PM


1. You must have purchased an entry into Megacon 2017 in order to enter/present on stage for the Costume Contest.

2. The Costume Contest is a family-oriented event. Please keep all costumes to a “PG-13″ rating (i.e. no nudity or overly revealing attire).

3. No bought costumes. Costumes must be 50% crafted or more. You may purchase parts of a costume, but said parts must be disclosed during the judging process. If you are not the maker of your costume (and simply modeling), said creator of the costume must be present with you upon entry. If the costume wins an award, the award will go to the creator of the costume.

4. All weapons and props must conform with Megacon rules, convention center policies, and local laws concerning carrying a weapon. If there is a question of doubt, don’t bring it.

5. Please provide reference images of the character you are dressed as. We cannot guarantee the judges will know what your character looks like, so having something to compare to will help you as much as them! Please provide this image on a piece of paper to attach to your costume contest registration form. No digital images (i.e. cell phones, iPads, portable computers, tablets, etc.) or books can be submitted for your reference image. Please print the picture out for the judges.

6. All entries must be sourced from an anime, manga, or video games of Japanese origin. This means “original characters” are not permitted in the contest.

7. Each costume must be entered separately. The costumes may be presented on stage (and prejudged) together, but each costume is judged as a separate entry. Simply put: the “Best of Show” award can only go to one individual and not a group. The “Best Group” award, however, is an example of multiple entries being presented together to win this award.

8. The contest will be limited to 50 entries total. Please be at the event at sign up time - and entries are taken in a first come/first serve order.

9. Megacon & Wasabi Anime reserve the right to modify, update, or amend the rules at any time.

10. Have fun!
